Ok i did a search on trans. temp gauge. Didn't come across anything on this subject. What's a good Brand, type, etc to try and find. And where do you install the sending unit. I've seen on that suggested the oil pan drain plug. i don't think so.

Is it possible to use an oil temp gauge for trans temp? I have Prosport gauges in my truck which can warn you with a beep and the gauge flashing red. below is a link to a video of what they do. I don't think they(Prosport) make a trans temp gauge.

Those are cool gauges but I don't know about their quality. I like autometer gauges. Pm me if you ever need a price on any.
Quality appears to be good. All of their gauges come with the sending units and they work as advertised. Their customer service is good as well. I don't think they are a big company. I am going to order 2 oil temp gauges and use one for the trans. They also come with jumper cables so you can daisy chain them for power and the connectors on the sending units are weather pack connctors.

MongoVB, wheed you find those gauegs? The only ones Ive seen like that are the Nexus series from autometer, and a bit pricey. I currently runnig a set of Phantom series, I like the way the look, kinda wished I had got something that matched my instrument cluster.
